Sixteen people gathered on Thursday 28 November 2019 at St Joseph’s By The Sea Spirituality Centre for the Catholic Social Services Victoria workshop entitled Walking The Land with Catholic Social Teaching. This third workshop for the year is the ‘coastal walk’ with the key principles of Catholic Social Teaching seen through the lens of Integral Ecology which is so richly presented throughout Pope Francis’ Laudato Si – On Care for Our Common Home. 

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety’s Interim Report: Neglect demonstrates serious flaws in the provision of aged care in Australia. Catholic Social Services Victoria is concerned that the Commission’s final report needs to sufficiently take into account the particular needs of some of the most disadvantaged and vulnerable elderly people receiving aged care services. Our submission focuses on the needs of elderly people who have experienced homelessness, long-term disadvantage and marginalisation and as a consequence, have specific care needs as they grow older. 

It is with pleasure that we formally announce the appointment of Mr Joshua Lourensz as the new Executive Director of Catholic Social Services Victoria.


Everyone should have the opportunities to flourish. In our submission on the 2020 Victorian State Budget, we call on Government to fund for fairness, equity and inclusion, to ensure long-term solutions to disadvantage and poverty. Anything that diminishes the lives of individuals also has a limiting effect on the wider community.  This means funding long-term solutions to address disadvantage and poverty and a commitment to social inclusion for all.
